The benefits of zinc
Zinc is an essential mineral that has more than 100 functions in the body. It is necessary for, among other things:
- normal cognitive function.
- cell division and growth
- normal skin, nails and hair
- normal bones
- normal fertility
Finally, zinc contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system and acts as an antioxidant.
Why take Life Extension Enhanced Zinc Lozenges?
Enhanced Zinc Lozenges are designed to harness these latter two benefits of zinc. The lozenges provide a high dose of zinc acetate. This form dissolves into ionic zinc with a positive charge and provides excellent support to defences. Furthermore, the lozenges are completely plant-based and have a peppermint flavour.
You can support your immune system by taking a high dose of zinc if you feel sickness coming on. You should not take such high doses for more than a few days, otherwise you may be at risk of copper deficiency.
All the benefits of Life Extension Enhanced Zinc Lozenges

- Suitable for short periods of megadosing
Ingredients & Usage
Completely dissolve in mouth one (1) lozenge every 2 wakeful hours, not to exceed 8 lozenges per day, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner.
Do not use for more than 3 consecutive days. Do not chew or swallow lozenge. May cause nausea if taken on an empty stomach.
Supplemental zinc can inhibit the absorption and availability of copper. If more than 50 mg of supplemental zinc is taken daily on a chronic basis, 2 mg of supplemental copper should also be taken to prevent copper deficiency. Chronic ingestion of more than 100 mg of zinc daily may be immunosuppressive for some aspects of T-cell and NK cell function.
